Bern’s Lorraine quarter

The Lorraine quarter in Bern, not far from my office, used to be the trendy area in which to live, meet, dine and hang out. These days, a lot of the trendies seem to have moved on, but the quarter is still a nice network of little streets in which to take a stroll. Despite the huge amount of graffiti on many of the buildings, the quarter still retains a lot of interesting little quirks and details.
